Update CentOS 6.3 openssl Offline

Download the new rpm packages from the CentOS website for openssl and openssl-devel.

Copy these onto the offline system that needs to be upgraded.

Make a new folder that will be set this up as a repository. I used /home/user/repo

make a new repository file under /etc/yum.repos.d/

Example:

[centoslocal]
name=CentOS Local
baseurl=file:///home/user/repo
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0

Save this as /etc/yum.repos.d/centoslocal.repo

copy the new rpm files into /home/user/repo

In the /home/user/repo directory run:

createrepo .

Updating yum now should detect the new repo and realize that there is an update for the openssl packages. Accept the changes and they should be applied automatically and successfully.

yum update
